Anthony Miller might return from a shoulder injury on Sunday. The Bears’ rookie receiver practiced in full for the first time Wednesday since he suffered a dislocated left shoulder against the Cardinals.

“He’s been positive, he’s been energetic,” coach Matt Nagy said. “He’s been in the classroom learning and learning away.”

In three games, Miller has eight receptions on 11 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown.

The Bears sent a 2019 second-round pick to the Patriots to select Miller in the second round this year, and consider him an integral part of Nagy’s offense. Nagy said earlier this week that the biggest challenge will be extending his arms high into the air to catch a pass.

Prince Amukamara, who injured his hamstring against the Cardinals, was listed as limited after sitting out practice last week. Fellow cornerback Marcus Cooper also missed practice with a hamstring problem.

Guard Eric Kush, who rotated with rookie James Daniels against the Bucs, was limited because of a neck problem.

Coming off a bye, the Bears are far healthier than the Dolphins, who listed 14 players on their injury report: defensive ends Cameron Wake (knee) and Robert Quinn (not injury-related), safety T.J. McDonald (foot), cornerback Bobby McClain (knee) and receiver Danny Amendola (not injury-related).
